Focusing is a natural process that most of us tap into from time to time, though we may not know we do it. Whenever you are aware of a vague but insistent gut feeling that something is not OK, or know inside you that something else 'just feels right', you are listening to what your body is telling you. This is the beginning of Focusing.

Focusing can bring about a sense of aliveness and transformation which can enhance almost any area of life. For instance, it can help you with:

  • solving problems
  • creative work such as writing or painting
  • relationships with family and friends
  • difficulties such as addictions, stress or chronic pain
  • making decisions

  • Focusing and Psychotherapy
    Focusing is not psychotherapy and does not require the presence of a trained professional. Once you have learnt the skills, you can practise them on your own or with any other Focuser. You may feel, however, that there are issues which you need to explore by talking about them in depth, in which case psychotherapy may be an option. I would be happy to discuss this with you.

    Learning Focusing
    You can learn Focusing either individually or in a group. Individual sessions can be one-off, occasional or more regular, depending on what works best for you. I also run five-weekend courses. If you attend all five weekends you will receive the BFA (British Focusing Association) Focusing Skills Certificate. This certificate is not a professional qualification but it is essential if you wish to train as a Focusing practitioner or teacher. Click here for the dates and venue of the next Focusing course.

    For bookings or more information contact me. For information about other Focusing workshops in Devon and the South West, visit the British Focusing Association website.

    I also offer Focusing practitioner training. For details contact me.
